For more course tutorials visit uophelp.com is now newtonhelp.com www.newtonhelp.com

Community Health Roles. Due by Day 7. Complete The Community Health Roles worksheet located in your online classroom. (Instructions are also on the first two pages of the worksheet) Part I: Start by reviewing the articles on quasi-government and non-governmental agencies in your REQUIRED course materials. Then: · Provide solid definitions of governmental agencies, quasi-government, nongovernment agencies. Please do not copy your definitions from a dictionary or any source. You must explain these in your own words. Copying and/or direct quoting will result in 0 points on this portion of your assignment. ·

Explain the difference between public health and medical services.

Part II: INSTRUCTIONS: Complete the chart below. In each box in column 1, you need to select four public health concerns from the list below. (You might want to review information on some of the suggested health topics in Chapters 5, 6, 7, and 9 in your textbook, listed in RECOMMENDED course materials.) Your task is to find health-related organizations/agencies and a link to their website that address these issues at three distinct levels:


1.

Governmental Agencies (column B)

2.

Quasi-Government Agencies (column C)

3.

Non-Governmental Agencies (column D).

Then, in column E, write in one or two sentences explaining why this issue is a public or community health concern. Remember that public/community health focuses on populations, not individuals. Think back to your explanation in Part II outlining the differences between public health medical services. You are required to review scholarly research to determine the role of public health as it relates to these issues. Each description MUST include a citation. Please note that your description of the importance to public health should not be rooted in the individual medical health care. Public health focuses on populations, not individual care. See the example below to help you with your worksheet responses.

HCA 415 Week 3 Quiz HCA 415 Week 4 Assignment Advocating for Public Health Policy

For more course tutorials visit uophelp.com is now newtonhelp.com www.newtonhelp.com

Advocating for Public Health Policy. Imagine that you have been chosen to represent a public health advocacy group as they begin a campaign to get legislation related to a health issue passed in your state legislature. You have been tasked with the role of presenting a proposed policy to the legislature and advocating that the legislature vote for the policy. You have been told that you will have 10 minutes to present to the legislature. Your presentation should be informative, but also persuasive. The legislature will need to make a decision about whether or not to vote for the policy based on your presentation. Your presentation should be structured exactly as if you were “live” in front of the legislature advocating for them to adopt the policy you are proposing. For your assignment, you will need to select a public health topic of interest to you (you are encouraged to choose one related to your academic major or intended field of work) and a public health policy related to addressing the topic. You may select an actual proposed policy or create one that you think would effectively address the topic. Your presentation should provide enough information about the topic and the proposed policy that a reasonably educated legislator should be able to make an informed decision. Be sure to consider the various questions that a legislator might have about the issue and proposed policy, such as long-term costs and benefits, potential effects on business and industry (especially those that support politicians’ campaigns), and how the policy will support the health and productivity of state residents.

For this assignment, you should create an approximately 10 minute presentation* that addresses each of the following points:


 Discuss the public health issue that your proposed policy is intended to address. Questions to consider: o

Who does this health issue affect?

o

What is the impact of this health issue on the community?

o

Why does this health issue need to be addressed?

 o

Explain the proposed public health policy. Questions to consider: Who will be affected by this policy?

o How will this policy address the health issue? o 

What will change by enacting this policy? Evaluate the impacts of the proposed policy. Questions to consider:

o

What are the costs and benefits of the policy?

o

What are the risks of enacting or notenacting the policy?

o How will the lives of people who are affected by the health issue change if this policy is enacted?  Create an influential presentation that affects voting behaviors of legislators. Questions to consider: o What information about this policy would potentially affect the voting behavior of legislators from across the political spectrum (eg. conservative, moderate, liberal, progressive; particularly those who might not support the policy based on political orientation)? o

What are the most important messages that legislators need to hear about this policy?

o How would the constituents of the legislators voting for this policy feel about this policy and a legislator who votes for it?  What information would a legislator need to “sell” the policy to consitutents who were perhaps not in favor of adopting the policy? HCA 415 Week 4 DQ 1 Public Health Disasters & Preparedness (Tornado Scenario PPT)


For more course tutorials visit uophelp.com is now newtonhelp.com www.newtonhelp.com

Public Health Disasters & Preparedness. Read through the emergency disasters below. Select one of these scenarios, links are located in your online classroom, and then complete the following steps:

Scenario No. 1: “Dragon/Volcano Emergency Response” Scenario No. 2: “Vaccine Gone Awry Emergency Response” Scenario No. 3: “Tornado Scenario” Scenario No. 4: “Tropical Cyclone and Flooding” Scenario No. 5: “Zombie Apocalypse”

Imagine you are the director of FEMA using NIMS when this disaster occurs.

Develop a PSA (using either Screencast or video) that informs the population of what will be done to resolve the issue. Address these elements in your video: Describe the nature of the situation. Explain what FEMA and others are doing to mitigate the situation. Explain what people need to do to stay safe and/or to get help in order to reduce panic. Your vocal tone should be one that is meant to reduce panic and provide a solid explanation of the above elements.


Copy and paste the URL to your video or screencast within your discussion forum response. If you are unable to create a YouTube video for this discussion, you may use a screencast program. However, you do not need to develop a PowerPoint presentation. This discussion is meant to assess your communication abilities, therefore, the audio portion of the video and/or screencast is essential. If you elect to use the screencast option, you may simply use a picture of yourself reporting the above information in lieu of a PowerPoint. Questions to think about while formulating your response to the public:

What are the issues you will address first? Which organization is responsible for what? Where will you allocate your resources? What public health concerns are the results of each of these events? Which populations might be most at risk? What are some of the long-term health effects of these events? What other health concerns may arise from these events? What will you say to the people, who are desperately awaiting your direction? HCA 415 Week 4 DQ 1 Public Health Disasters & Preparedness (Zombie Apocalypse)

Public Health Disasters & Preparedness. Read through the emergency disasters below. Select one of these scenarios, links are located in your online classroom, and then complete the following steps:


Scenario No. 1: “Dragon/Volcano Emergency Response” Scenario No. 2: “Vaccine Gone Awry Emergency Response” Scenario No. 3: “Tornado Scenario” Scenario No. 4: “Tropical Cyclone and Flooding” Scenario No. 5: “Zombie Apocalypse”

Imagine you are the director of FEMA using NIMS when this disaster occurs.

Develop a PSA (using either Screencast or video) that informs the population of what will be done to resolve the issue. Address these elements in your video: Describe the nature of the situation. Explain what FEMA and others are doing to mitigate the situation. Explain what people need to do to stay safe and/or to get help in order to reduce panic. Your vocal tone should be one that is meant to reduce panic and provide a solid explanation of the above elements. Copy and paste the URL to your video or screencast within your discussion forum response. If you are unable to create a YouTube video for this discussion, you may use a screencast program. However, you do not need to develop a PowerPoint presentation. This discussion is meant to assess your communication abilities, therefore, the audio portion of the video and/or screencast is essential. If you elect to use the screencast option, you may simply use a picture of yourself reporting the above information in lieu of a PowerPoint.

HCA 415 Week 4 DQ 2 Allocating Public Health Resources

Allocating Public Health Resources Imagine that you are standing on the bank of a river and injured people start floating down the river towards you. There is no end to the floating people‌they just keep coming and coming. You are alone and you do not have cell service to phone for back up. What do you do? In your discussion post, discuss what type of assistance you would want to provide. Explain where you think it would be best to focus your energy assisting (ie. should you stay where you are and pull people out of the river, or should you go upstream to find out why injured people are ending up in the river?) Determine what proportion of assistance should go to aiding injured people versus preventing the cause of the injuries in the first place. Justify your reasoning for why you would allocate your resources that way. (There is no right or wrong answer to this; it is a matter of determining the priorities between treatment vs. prevention.)

Our DQ is Based on State Texas, South Carolina

What are YOU going to do about it? In the past weeks, you have examined and explored the challenges and issues facing delivery of public health services in a given community and across the nation. The goal of public health is to prevent disease and promote health. To that end, take a moment to review your own communities health needs through a purview of current events, your own setting by informally interviewing public health professionals, or reviewing national databases like the ones listed below: America’s Health Rankings. (2015). Retrieved from http://www.americashealthrankings.org/ The Commonwealth Fund. (2015). Overall Ranking, 2014. Retrieved from For this discussion, you are asked to do the following: 1.

Describe a significanat health issue in your community or state.

2. Compare its significance to the national priorities of Healthy People 2020 goals (is it a national priority or just one found in your state/community). 3. Explain what type of effort it will take to fully address it (leadership skills, financing, organizational buy-in, stakeholders, perceptions, barriers) 4. Evaluate the efforts YOU can take to address this issue. (As a public health practitioner, what is YOUR role such as: Will you develop, lead or be part of a public health program to address the issue? Will you work on financing, organizational buy-in, stakeholders...what are you going to do to address this concern?)
